Jaguar has released additional details about the 4-cylinder 2.0-liter Ingenium turbodiesel engine inside the 2015 XE.

Billed as being "the most efficient Jaguar diesel ever", the newly developed aluminum-made Ingenium 4-cylinder 2.0-liter is a Euro 6-compliant motor benefiting from variable exhaust valve timing, selective catalytic reduction technology and a cooled low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation system. The engine will be produced at a new 100,000m2 manufacturing center in the West Midlands in United Kingdom where Jaguar has invested £500 million.

In the XE it will be offered in two states of tune: 163 HP (120 kW) & 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) and 180 HP (132 kW) & 430 Nm (317 lb-ft), with the former allowing the baby Jaguar return 75 mpg UK (62.4 mpg US or 3.7 liters / 100 km) and emit only 99 g/km which will make it the company's most efficient model ever.

Besides the Ingenium diesel, the 2015 Jaguar XE will also be offered with 4-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engines and a beefier 3.0-liter V6 supercharged motor which will develop 340 HP (250 kW) and 450 Nm (331 lb-ft) in the hotter XE S.

Full details about the XE will be released on October 2 during the first press day of the Paris Motor Show.
